Townes Gibson, an Industrial Design student, spent his fall semester at LovePop, a Boston-based greeting card company that specializes in three-dimensional imagery that “pops up” as a person opens a card. One of the design challenges in a LovePop card is its level of intricacy. Each laser-cut card contains complex pieces that must display a high level of detail while also folding back into place when the card is closed without damaging the design. “It’s highly engineered,” Gibson says. “And we’ve definitely drawn some inspiration from origami.”
